Free Screening: Dec. 6th - FagBug

First Tuesday Social Justice Film Festival
December 6th, 2016 7:00pm
Doors open at 6:30pm


In light of the current situation in our country, we felt it was appropriate to rescreen this tale of one determined individual's response to an expression of hatred.

On the 11th Annual National Day of Silence, Erin Davies was victim to a hate crime in Albany, New York. Because of sporting a rainbow sticker on her VW Beetle, Erin's car was vandalized, left with the words "fag" and "u r gay" placed on the driver's side window and hood of her car. Despite initial shock and embarrassment, Erin decided to embrace what happened by leaving the graffiti on her car. She took her car, now known worldwide as the "fagbug," on a 58-day trip around the US and Canada. Along the way, Erin discovered other, more serious hate crimes, had people attempt to remove the graffiti, and experimented with having a male drive her car. After driving the fagbug for 1 year, Erin decided to give her car a makeover.
This screening is being co-sponsored by the Dallas Peace and Justice Center
